SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C.

OMB may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal law, or substantially interfere with any agency's ability to perform its statutory obligations.

Frequency: One time.

Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Gov't, SEAs or LEAs.

Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses:—14,751. Burden Hours—6,992.

Abstract: This study will examine the proportion of Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities grantees that are implementing research-based programs and practices that are found to be effective and the proportion of these programs that are implementing the research with a high degree of fidelity. Specifically the study will investigate the following two research questions:

(1) What proportion of drug and/or violence prevention programs nationally, and in the SDFSC program, are implementing research-based drug and/or violence prevention programs and practices that scientific evidence has shown produce positive outcomes?

(2) To what extent nationally, and in the SDFSC program, are drug and/or violence prevention programs that are implementing research-based programs and practices doing so with fidelity to the research on which they are based?

To address these questions, this study is conducting a systematic review of research to identify effective programs and practices and will survey a nationally-representative sample of districts, schools, and Governors programs to assess the implementation quality of prevention programs and practices.
